If you happened to catch the Top Baby Registry Must-Haves post I published last week, then you seen that I mentioned that I was going to have a little baby challenge. My brother and his fiance have been having the baby talk with their wedding date coming up. I decided to put them to the test and give them a little taste of what I deal with daily by challenging them to a few typical mom tasks. Check out the challenge below along with some pregnancy resources that you’ll need to know! They include baby budgeting tips, hospital checklist, and more!
What You Need To Know Before Your Baby Arrives
The first challenge featured one of our favorite baby products that we mentioned in our Top Baby Registry post from last week, the Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard. It’s half the weight of other popular play yards with all the same great features for truly portable use, it even breaks down into a convenient travel bag! It’s also super easy to assemble and breakdown, which takes me less than five minutes. (Even non-parents can do it with ease!). I was curious to see how well my brother would do with this task because I know some play yards can be pretty intimidating. Surprisingly though he passed! It helps that there are directions with images on the bottom of the play yard that can help you break it down. It took him almost 6 minutes to do everything, which isn’t bad considering he’s never touched a play yard before. He also had no idea how versatile they can be, like the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard, which acts as a sleeper, portable changing table, and play yard all in one. The Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard is available exclusively at Walmart for $139.99. Purchase at Walmart
Next was a bottle challenge, which he failed using the wrong measurements. The final challenge was to pack a diaper bag, which I thought would be pretty easy but I also have been doing it for 4 years! He ended up packing wipes, diapers, changing pad, snacks, and a sippy cup. All of those are fine but there are a few other things that I think are necessities when you’re out with kids like extra clothing and toys. We also love board books to keep the kids occupied while we shop.
I included a handy diaper bag checklist printable that includes all of the necessities, you can print it off and keep it with you whenever you need it.
